Hello dear Margret, so happy to meet you! Love to AUS ~ Maja
Lovely picture Ian. Greetings Berend
Dear Maja* and **Berend,
Margaret sends her greetings to you both, too. The geese and seals and penguins were all about on the beach, and a group was preparing for a sea kayaking trip to observe the marine animals and birds. We were enjoying an early morning explore and walk with my camera.
What a nice smile! She looks pretty..
Warm greetings to you both.
With love. Füsun
And we are so happy to receive your greetings, dear Fü. We both remember that morning with joy: joy of discovery, joy of being together. It was a totally new environment for us.
Ian // Margaret
Very nice portrait of Margaret with beautiful landscape in the background, Ian.
Did she accompany you to beautiful Tonga too?
Yes indeed, Ah-Pong we both work in Tonga, both fully engaged. I think this year (July-Nov) may be our last in Tonga. We are off to NZ again next month and will be working in Auckland, Wellington, Queenstown and Christchurch - lucky people aren't we?!! It is wonderful to enjoy the landscapes as well as the hospitality ... and our work too!
Moments like this pictured are treasured. We were out walking early that morning and delighting in the landscape and its wildlife.
Good morning Margaret and Ian. The wildlife sounds a real treat here, and I'm surprised that you didn't try to get in on the kayaking.
I like the ridged hills in the background as well as that lovely smile in the foreground :))
You are indeed very lucky people. When you say that you are going to NZ next month, does this mean this month now?
Warm wishes to you both, Amelia
Good morning, Amelia. And a warm smile comes your way. The deal is I drive and Margaret paddles, so we have usually opted for the car rather than the kayak! ;) The kayakers were going a couple of bays further round, to Sleepy Bay I think, and this gives them plenty of close in opportunities to see the marine wildlife.
Perhaps next time we might see if it is possible to drive into a few more of these isolated bays.
The intended next month, is March, Amelia. You have your world times chart out and checking on the time of entry..I was writing for the time it would be read!! I love your astuteness.
And warmest regards to you - in the chill of Norway, while we dodge floods and tropical cyclones.
Ian (+ Margaret)
Love to you and Caroline, Leo. When are you coming back?
And there is a view! Like
Yes Goran, there are great views, from the high hillsides and cliff tops especially. And below Margaret there were seals lolling on the beach.
Hi Ian!!! It is a pleasure to meet Margaret in this beautiful environment!!! I enjoyed seeing your images of NZ!!! I love returning to your gallery because I know I will meet with pleasant surprises!!!
It will be a pleasure to welcome you and Margaret in Patagonia... not hesitate to come my friend, here I'll be waiting with open arms :))!!!
Friendly greetings to both, Toto
Greetings Toto. Yes that's my girl!! She is wonderful, gracious and wise. I look forward as she does to making it to Patagonia one day!! And then you will meet your Aussie friends. We look forward to your open arms.
And I am glad that you have enjoyed my New Zealand images. Tomorrow I will be in NZ again for a 5 week stint so there will be more NZ images to share when I return.
